12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 253 Date: 09/10/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: I spent the morning working on a solo guitar piece for my friend and musical comrade Simon Henneman, which he'll perform at our collaborative Racer Session concert in October. In Simon's playing I hear a tremendous force of expressiveness that seems fully personal, complete, and inherently different from other musicians...

12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 186 Date: 07/05/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: In my improvisation yesterday I worked with a very active sound environment with a looser sensibility. Today I decided to perform the antithesis of that improvisation, and worked on improvising a piece with a very centered, very controlled environment. This piece was recorded quietly and I worked for some time to eliminate as much air and saliva crackl...

12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 276 Date: 10/03/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Practice Room B at South Whidbey High School. Langley, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: In today's improvisation I wanted to explore the idea of stationary sound with accompanying motion. To do this I structured the improvisation around two specific chord clusters and found fingerings that would allow the main chords themselves to ring out despite a variety of action around them...

12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 98 Date: 04/08/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: I spent a portion of the day reviewing my notations on small intervals chord clusters.  I'm in the process of committing to memory the fingering systems to all the split tone chords I've discovered so far.   This inspired my improvisation today, which covered a total interval span of less than a minor third, in ascending order from a middle octave ...

12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 105 Date: 04/15/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: My improvisation today explores melodicism within both chordal gestures and in single pitches.  The approach taken in this piece is somewhat different than any I've explored within this solo project so far.   Generally, when I thread chords together it's the chords themselves that are the main focus, but today I instead worked to place the interna...

12 Moons Solo Saxophone Project Day 53 Date: 02/22/2013 Instrument: Tenor saxophone Location: Home studio in Clinton, WA (Whidbey Island) Notes: Through a series of four fingerings, I explored the use of tonality with multiphonics in my improvisation today. The wide world of multiphonic playing includes many clusters of pitches, many of which are surprisingly consonant. However, I don't believe I have come upon a multiphonic chord that speaks fully tempered pitches...

This technique is relatively simple with some pitces, but depending on what range is chosen the horn can fight back with an incredible amount of back pressure and physical discomfort...
